Constituency Question - Brighton Primary School



Thursday, 2 November 2023.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (14:35):

My question is to the Deputy Premier and Minister for Education.

When will the Government provide much-needed funding to Brighton Primary School?

Brighton Primary School is an incredible school in my community and is soon to turn 150 years old. It has been servicing the Brighton community for 150 years.

The community has worked hard to ensure that the school is as we would hope that it would be, but the school does need a fair amount of capital funding, and the government unfortunately has neglected that school for many, many years.

In fact, the school has not received any funding for 50 years in terms of capital funding.

A petition was recently signed by over 750 parents and local residents, and I call on the Minister to properly address capital funding needs at Brighton Primary School, in Brighton.
